Canon EOS C300

 

The Canon EOS C300 camcorder is capable enough for use in broadcast environments, but if you don't need HD-SDI or Genlock output, consider the C100 Mark II as a much more affordable alternative.

Modular design. Supports Canon lens system. Excellent high ISO video quality. Sharp EVF and external monitor. HD-SDI, Time Code, and Genlock output. Dual CF card slots. XLR audio input. Multi-step in-camera neutral density filter.

Expensive. Video tops out at 1080p30. Image sensor is not full-frame. AF system struggles in dim light. Lacks onboard shotgun mic. Video quality on par with more affordable cameras.

My first impressions of the new Canon C300 are simply - wow!

 

The product manager at Canon for Pro video gear, Charles Montesin has sent us a unit to play with, with a 70~300mm EF lens stapled to the front. And this weekend is the Blues Festival in Echuca. A fantastic subject to test it with!

Although it gets some stick, there are few people who could argue that RED changed cinematography more radically than almost any technological advance
